“Slack is a communication tool meant for businesses and groups. It provides real-time conversations between team members, file sharing, a very powerful search, what amounts to topic-focused ‘chat rooms,’ and more. I’ve been using it in a professional sense for months now. Only recently did it dawn me on what an effective family communication tool it could be as well.”
This is a great idea. We’ve been using Slack at work for over a year, improving communications between our two parishes, but I’d never thought about using it for family communications. Right now my extended family uses a combination of text messages, emails, Facebook Messages, and a Facebook group to communicate, but it often gets confused and confusing. Having a specific place like Slack would be awesome. I wonder if I could get everyone to use it.
